The Gallup poll released on Wednesday showed that most Republicans in the United States support same-sex marriage for the first time, and a record 70% of respondents support same-sex marriage.
The survey shows that since 2015, the support rate for same-sex marriage has increased significantly, when the Supreme Court ruled that the act was legalized in the country, when 60% of Americans told Gallup to support same-sex marriage.
At the time, a Gallup poll pointed out that 37% of Republicans support same-sex marriage, and now that number has risen to 55%.
“One of the most interesting trends in our research is that Americans can change their views on something in a fairly short period of time,” said Gallup analyst Justin McCarthy.
“Now we see Republicans express their support with an overwhelming majority for the first time.”
The Republican Party has always been more conservative in society and is reluctant to support the advancement of LGBT+ rights, while transgender people under the Trump administration have been barred from joining the U.S. military.
According to a human rights movement advocating LGBT+ rights, 29 countries around the world, including Norway, Portugal and the Republic of South Africa, have legalized same-sex marriage.
Chilean President Sebastian Pinera (Sebastian Pinera) said this month that although he recognized the same-sex citizen community in 2015, he will speed up the formulation of the same-sex marriage law, which has been used by this historically conservative South American for many years. Ignored by the state.
Japan, Lithuania and Thailand are also discussing legislation on this issue.
The Gallup poll also revealed the generational gap in LGBT+ issues, with older people’s views more conservative than younger or middle-aged people.
Among respondents aged 18 to 34, the approval rate for same-sex marriage was 84%, among respondents aged 35 to 54 it was 72%, and among respondents aged 55 and over 60%.
